20 albums we’re most excited for in 2015: Rihanna, Adele, Kanye

2014 gave us massive debut albums (George Ezra, Sam Smith, Royal Blood) and some great pop records (Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift), as well as some anticipated releases that failed to impress.

But what releases can we expect in 2015? Read below to find out what albums you can get excited about over the next 12 months.

1. Madonna: Rebel Heart

If there’s one thing we’ve enjoyed throughout 2014, it’s Madonna’s ridiculous Instagram account. Fans who follow the Queen of Pop will know that she has been working hard all year on her 13th studio album Rebel Heart, while also coming up with any number of amazing hashtags (personal highlight: #cantabitchjustfinishhers**t). Despite the illegal leak of 13 unfinished tracks earlier this month (and subsequent official release of 6 tracks), we are still eager to hear the final, polished product when it comes out in March. If ‘Ghosttown’ and ‘Living For Love’ are anything to go by, we’re expecting it to be Madonna’s best new album in years.

Donatella Versace Says Madonna’s Body Was Not Photoshopped

Rita Hayworth gave good face, but Madonna gives good body. Over the weekend, Donatella Versace spoke to the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera about her longstanding friendship with the star, who’s the face of the new Versace campaign. As translated by Glamour, her comments included a strong denial that Madonna’s gym-won abs and arms got the Photoshop treatment. “She did not have her abdomen or arms retouched,” said the designer.

The process was also considerably more low-key than you might think, at least according to Versace. “With Lady Gaga [it] was a bit more complicated. She focuses on transformation and charisma … So the final approval of the photo was a melee. But [with] Madonna, absolutely not … I told her: You don’t have to be only sexy. I want you like I know you: a vulnerable person who is afraid, who suffers from loneliness and yet is strong, determined, and fearless. In these photos, she is.” The designer also revealed that the charitable star will be donating her fee from the campaign to the hospital she opened in Malawi.

Madonna’s ‘Devastating’ Album Leak: Guy Oseary on the ‘Circus Show’ of Getting ‘Rebel Heart’ to Fans

Madonna’s surprise pre-release of six songs from her upcoming album Rebel Heart on Dec. 20 was a hard-fought victory: the result of two sleepless nights to combat the widespread leaks of more than a dozen unfinished demos just three days prior. And it almost didn’t happen.

“We didn’t know until Friday night [December 19], 11:30 [Eastern] and 8:30 [Pacific] that it would even work,” Guy Oseary, Madonna’s longtime manager, said in a phone interview on Dec. 23. “There was a chance that technically it was not possible because it was so last-minute. Normally it wouldn’t be the end of the world, but because iTunes was shutting down [for the holiday] we were told that it would either go live at 11:30 East Coast time or January 5. We didn’t know — she was saying her prayers, we were all just hoping.”

The result? Pre-orders for the March 10, 2015 album topped the iTunes charts in more than 36 countries, with three of the album’s six finished songs entering this week’s Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. Lead single “Living For Love” was serviced to U.S. radio stations on Dec. 22 by Madonna’s label Interscope, with a bigger push coming in January. An official music video will be filmed next month as well, with a planned release for the “first week of February,” as Oseary revealed in a separate Twitter Q&A on Dec. 27.

But Madonna & co. aren’t coming up for air just yet. Just hours after Oseary spoke with Billboard on Dec. 23, 14 more tracks from the Rebel Heart sessions leaked, including the alleged Lady Gaga diss track “Two Steps Behind Me” (which Oseary has already denied is about Gaga or “anyone in particular”).

Below is an excerpt of Billboard’s conversation with Oseary last Tuesday (Dec. 23), including a detailed account of how Madonna and her team sprang into action to respond to the leaks. “If people knew what had to happen from Wednesday to get it it up for Friday, it was a circus show.”

Madonna Glorifies Illuminati in New Song & Blasphemes, Calling The All Seeing Eye ‘Truth and Light’ [LISTEN HERE]

In this day and age the illuminati is popularly associated to people in power who use evil and witchcraft to advance, but according to pop icon Madonna’s and her new song the illuminati is a good thing and she is happy to be apart of it.

The singer released a song this month titled “Illuminati” in which she names all of her celebrity peers that have been linked to the elite group. The singer explained that those people are not illuminati but instead the All Seeing Eye is truth and light. Truth and Light are both words associated to Jesus in the Bible and in the context of the song; really do not make sense unless the singer has another message for her listeners.

In a recent Facebook post along with a picture displaying just one of her eyes Madonna tells people she is grateful that they call her a member of the illuminati. “Thank you for the compliment! ‪#‎knowledgeispower #rebelheart ‪#‎illuminati,” she wrote.
